Karry Best movie of this year hands down!
Listonixio Fresh and Exciting
Tayyab Torres Strong acting helps the film overcome an uncertain premise and create characters that hold our attention absolutely.
Fleur Actress is magnificent and exudes a hypnotic screen presence in this affecting drama.
csumm Louis Anderson is the standout in this series. While Zach Galifianakis is a good actor in his own right, he is great here.. But Louis Anderson is outstanding. His performance makes me want him to be my mom.
joeybyrd-01954 This is such a great ensemble cast. If you love comedy with pathos and gentle nuance Baskets is for you. The best original comedy from the US in years.
bnickmartelli This shows isn't funny at all. What's funny about one guy tearing into a mother from two sides.I don't understand how treating people (they both treat everybody they meet with soooo much resentment) so badly is funny. They don't have joke or humor just ignorance. If this is television at its best if rather stare at a wall. He's just another vain actor trying to do too much with very little. Hey Zach you were better before you got real famous. Get back to the fat guy. Bet you had to hire a trainer to tell you how to get in shape but you tell everyone you did it on your own. PS. This review is written as well as your show
mirihiboy No idea how anyone finds this even remotely funny but each to their own. Given the talent combined to produce this, one would assume it would at least have one redeeming feature, but I can't find one.The character is solidly unlikable, has not one likable trait, his absurd obsession with his wife is just not funny, not as in it couldn't be, but the story-line is just not, the same for his female friend, treated with less than contempt. If this was a documentary called "how people with learning difficulties get on in life" it would fit, but its not, its not funny, and actually starts to irritate after a while as you just want the characters to stop being so thick.Hating the main character rather than feeling something for him gets a 0/10, unlike for example The Office, where despite David Brent being a coarse character, you still didn't dislike him in the way you end up disliking Baskets. What else is there if you hate the main character?Wanted to like it, but after three episodes, deleted from viewing.
